If you put an observer with a clock in a BH the time will be the same for the observer as the time outside the BH, only the time for observers out the BH time will go slower.
so if something is thrown in a BH the thing will be crushed instandly, but for the observers (from a distance of the BH) that something seems to stopt moving when it reaches the BH.

the Explanation of this is not easy, but the basic is that a object (sun, planet, BH) with a great mass makes a bubble/hole/curve (i don't know the exact word, my english isn't that good ;)) in space-time, and that makes time go slower for observers outside the curved space-time.
so if you leave earth in a spaceship traveling at light speed (the mass of the spaceship is than extreemly big) for let's say 1 year the real time on earth is 5.000 years later.
